If last night's G!O!T!N! pounding of George Mason by Creighton
was a miniature MVC-CAA Challenge, tonight the Valley turns its attention to throwing down with the MAC. Northern Iowa, led by Wooden award candidate Ben Jacobson
, is a near-unanimous pick to come out ahead in a two- (or three-) bid tussle in the MoVal, and Western Michigan has secured what Blue Ribbon
considers to be "possibly the best mid-major [recruiting] class in the country" in their attempt to secure its fourth straight postseason bid. The result of this game will undobtedly give the midwest's mid-major smack-talkers something to chew on besides their turkey tomorrow.
